I hope it does fix it, i had a virus before and i had to format my HDD, delete all partitions and then turn off the PC, then start again. I would do this but XP is an arse and wont just let you restart into DOS.

That is probably because Windows XP is not DOS based. Windows ME was the last Windows that used DOS as it's base.
I hope you realize that Formatting and deleting the partition(s) destroys all you data and your current install of Windows? If you deleted the partition and formatted the drive you will have to do a complete reinstall of XP.

I am aware of this, i have purchased a new HDD, it is a Seagate Barracuda 320GB 7,200RPM with 16MB cache. I have installed XP with all my programs and files.

Superise Superise it still does it. Does anyone have a large sledge hammer because im gonna tear this f*cking PC to pieces if it keeps happening, it never used to do it, now it does.
